What Should You Look in iXA Tablet ?
Since this tablet is releasing in the month of May, please don’t think that it will have Android Icecream Sandwich as its operating system. You cannot expect Ice cream sandwich to be implemented in this kind of cheap priced tablets. And another problem with these kind of cheap tablets is, most of the companies are trying to make the tablets as cheap as possible without paying much attention to the actual functionality. So its better to concentrate on what exactly students want from it. You cannot expect a 18yrs college going student to buy a cheap tablet and use it without installing more applications or run them at a time. Its better for the companies to design tablets which can be handled by elders too. Most of these cheap android tablets are not liked by college going students. The only people who buy these kind of normal and cheap tablets will be school going students.
Companies should focus more on quality, when compared with cheap price tag and tactics to get popularity. Lets hope that iXA Tablet gets some student attention.
